    Form document causing Word XP to loop (Word XP)

    I have a protected form document that I created under Windows 2000 (with W2K), and which can be modified just fine under Word 2000 (with W2K). However, when I try to modify the document using Word 2002/XP (with WinXP), Word goes into a loop (~97% CPU, never-ending until I terminate the task). I cannot figure out what is causing this problem. The fields that cause the problem when modified are the "Authorized Suppliers" fields (Auth_Supplier_1, Auth_Supplier_2, ... Auth_Supplier_9) in a table in the bottom half of the page. Other fields in the documents do not seem to cause the problem.

    Please help! This is the only remaining problem on a big project that is supposed to go into production today!

    Re: Form document causing Word XP to loop (Word XP)

    I have no explanation. The problem is not with the fields, or even with the table they are in, but in the location in the document. If I unprotect the document, drag the table to another location in the document, drag it back, then reprotect, I can fill in the form fields without problem. The attached document seems to work ok <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Thanks, Hans!

    This is a big mystery to me, which drove me crazy for several days (and still is, actually <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15> - if anybody know why it is looping, please let me know). However, the modification you made seems to be working, so we will burn our master CD's today. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> Thank you again, very much! <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
